These tortoise brooches are based on a 9th century find from Saltvik in Åland, Sweden.

This kind of oval brooch began to appear as early as the 8th century and was used in various design forms until the end of the 10th and beginning of the 11th century. It was a staple of Scandinavian women’s dress throughout the period. It was used to secure the shoulder straps on apron dresses to the front of the dress.

Early on these kinds of adornments were small, but they quickly grew in size by the start of the Viking age.

These brooches are made of bronze and measure 6 x 4 x 2 cm, and come with a pin in the back to fasten the straps for the apron dress.
